Choose trifle layer flavors. Prepare cake layer. Pieces should be uniform in shape (1" - 2" x 3" cubes). Spread with jam, jelly or curds. Place half the pieces in trifle dish, punch bowl or tall-sided glass dish. Sprinkle with liquor or fruit juice. Add 1/2 of prepared item for creamy layer on top of cake layer. Add fruits and/or candies (save some for top garnish.) Repeat with cake pieces, liquor sprinkling and rest of creamy layer. If regular cream not used for creamy layer, top with plain sweetened whipped cream. Garnish trifle with left over fruit and/or candy pieces. Refrigerate for at least an hour prior to serving. Refrigerate leftovers.
